Possible careers and jobs include business research, investment feasibility studies, banking security trading, insurance, corporate finance, personal work, labor relations, product marketing, international commerce, real estate, etc. Someday the business graduate may start up a small business and be his/her own boss. S/he may manage people in manufacturing, construction, food processing, chemical operations, mining, oil production, government, information systems, a health care facility, an accounting department, a store, restaurant, etc. Many corporate lawyers have undergraduate degrees in Business. 

The Emerson E. Evans School of Business incorporates the Rio model of two year associate degree + 2 year stackable bachelor degree.  As mentioned earlier, a degree in business is versatile and provides job opportunities in various occupations.  Our students are required to select an area of specialization during their first semester (Accounting, Banking, Healthcare Administration, Information Technology, or Marketing).  Professional Certificates are awarded upon successful completion of the associate degree and a minor will be attached to their bachelor degree.
